SELECTED POETRY. A TRUE STORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 19 January 1867

SELECTED POETRY. A TRUE STORY. A gallant ship from a distant land Rode swift o'er the ocean's foam, And the hearts of those on board beat high, For the vessel was nearing home. Half round the world had the good ship sailed, And through many a danger pass'd, For oft her stalwart spars had bent 'Neath the hurricane's raging blast.   But that morning from the topmast's height A sailor had spied the shore, And all thought of the haven near at hand, But none dreamt of danger more. 'Twas night, and all save the watch on deck Were quietly sleeping below, When the cry of "Fire" ran through the ship— A terrible sound of woe. " Fire !" 'tis a fearful cry wherever heard ; But, oh, to be woke from sleep, To hear it ringing in our ears, On the dark and fathomless deep. Wild were the shouts that rent the sky As the demon rushed fiercely on ; And the passengers round the captain clung, And asked madly if hope were gone. He tried to answer in cheerful tones, For the captain's heart was...

AN AWKWARD PREDICAMENT. I was onco engaged to be nmarried (how I went so for as that is a mystery to me still), but an incident of so frightful a character took place, as to put the matter entirely nut of the question. I was a young' undergraduate, spending the summer with a rending party at the Irish lakes, whonr I miet with-with Lucy, and got, in short, to he accepted. She was residing with her mother, in the same hotel at Killarney as ourselves, and we all met every day. We boated oi the lake together, aid fished, and sung, and read. We Ilanded on the wooded islands in the soft sunmmer evenings, to take our ten in gipsy fhshion, and to sketch; but she and I mostly whispered-not shout love at all, n? I re membor, but of the weather and the rubric; only it seemed so swoot to sink our voices and speak low and soft. Once, in a party over the moors, while I was lending ier pony over some hoggy ground, I cought her 'hand by mistake in stead of her bridle, and she did not snatch it away...

PUBLIC MEETING, BALLAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 26 January 1867

PUBLIC MEETING, BAILLAN. ON Wednesday evening, the 23rd inst., W. Duncan, Esq., J.P., convened a public meeting in accord. ance with the requisition presented to him from the ratepayers of Ballan, for the purpose of taking into consideration the advisabilit.y of a water supply. The meeting was held in the Mechanics' Institute, and was attended by all interested in the object of the meeting, and we were much surprised at the unanimity of opinion which pre. veiled. Mr. Duncan iead the requisition, and observed that it would be useless for him to enter upon the necessity for a supply of pure water for Ballan, for all know how much it was required. He had received that day a letter from the Minister of Mines, stating "that the water supply for Ballan was under consideration," and he doubted not but that the works would be pro. oeeded with at once. For his own part, he had long seen and felt the necessity for such supply, and most heartily did he respond to the object of the requisition ...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 26 January 1867

SATURDAY, JANUARY 20, 1867. TuE apnlling picture of the sufferings incurred in India from the effects of drought-as des cribed in the Argosy by " An Old Indian," and quoted. by us last week-is certainly one of the most harrowing that has come under our notice, or the notice of the British public, since 1801; and when it is proved beyond a doubt that the authorities who are responsible.for the welfare of the residents of that part of India, have it within their power to prevent such fearful calamities from taking place, we quite agree with the writer that no langunage can be too strong to condemn such conduct, as no language is strong enough to depict the misery which results from it. Since 1831, famine after famine has overtaken the unfortunate Hindoos, cutting them off by thousands in a day. We find it recorded that in the year 1831, and the two years following, the population in the province of Guntoor, a district in the Madras Presidency, was reduced from half to a quarter of a m...

AGRICULTURAL. RUST IN WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 26 January 1867

AGRI ULT TUIUAL, RTUST IN WHEAT, A COMMITTEE appointed by the Kentucky Agricultural and Mechanical Association to inquire into the dangers to which wheat crops are generally liable, repot's in reference to rust :--" It is not the intention of your com mittee to go into an intricate scientific invest igation of the nature of the disease called rust; probably the popularly received opinion may be as correct as any other, that is, that it is caused by the expansion of the fluids of the sap vessels by very hot weather rupturing their coats, permitting the slp to escape, and thus producing the disease. Be this so or not, every farmer knows it when it appears, and it is also a season of much anxiety with him until his crop shall have passed this danger; too often, however his brightest hopes and prospects are entirely blasted. ' At the close of the war of 1812 the most popular wheat then in cultivation was the Lamas, a smooth head, white variety. It was abandoned on account of rusting bad...
